The youngest members of the cast in Gurinder Chadha’s new film It’s A Wonderful Afterlife are the director’s twins, son Ronak and daughter Kumiko. Apparently both the kids not only insisted on being part of the film they even out-performed the veterans on screen.
Laughs Gurinder, “Yes my twins make their acting debut in my film, not once but twice. And both the times they steal the show. They first appear in a sequence in a park with my husband Paul and then later in a wedding scene throwing flowers at the bride and the groom.”
Not only that, the twins feature in the end-titles of It’s A Wonderful Afterlife with their mother.
“I can tell you this much, Ronak and Kumiko are naturals in front of the camera.”
Gurinder next venture would be a children’s film set in Kerala. It would be dedicated to her twins.
